Max Power reckons that we will pay his former club Tranmere the respect they deserve and certainly won’t underestimate them in the final of the Papa John's Trophy on Sunday.


"I think we're looking at is as a reward for treating the competition seriously. We outlined from the start of the season that we wanted to win it. A lot of clubs and different teams treat this competition in different ways. For us it's been a good, useful competition in terms of getting lads minutes. Each and every game we've entered we've wanted to win and I think you've seen how seriously we've taken the competition. For us now we want to go that one step further and go and win the final on Sunday."


"Tranmere were obviously on the end of a points-per-game relegation last year so I don't view them as a League Two club. You only have to look through the squad of players they've got to realise they are a real good side. We're expecting a really tough test and know that we've got to be right at our best to come through the game and win it."


"It's been two great experiences - a penalty shoot-out final defeat and then injured after 27 seconds in play-off defeat so I'm looking forward to getting back there. I don't look too much into that in terms of previous records and stuff like that. For us we're all looking forward to it and we've worked really hard to get here. You've got to play a good amount of games to get to the final and we now want to go that one step further and lift the trophy."


"Tuesday night was the first night I've won at Fratton Park and I've been going there since I was 18 - it was my first win in nearly 10 years. Records like that are there to be broken. For us we're fully focused on the task at hand and we're not taking anything for granted. We've trained really well today and the mood in the camp is very good at the moment. We're striving to get better and if we bring that on Sunday it should be enough."
